Monday August 31, 2015 1:30-2:30
Wednesday September 2, 2015 10:00-11:00
This was a Top Presentation at VMworld 2014. For a Database centric presentation to make it to the Top at VMworld is quite an accomplishment. This was also a presentation that became the catalyst for writing a book based upon the presentation. This presentation is about being able to successfully virtualize you most demanding virtual machines including you Monster VM’s like a database.
As co-presenters Jeff and I have great chemistry on stage. We go over a lot of material very quickly and make it a lot of fun along the way. The lesson learned here will apply to how to get the best performance from your most demanding virtual machines including your Monster VM’s.
This session is not to be missed. It usually fills up very quickly. The Monday Session has already sold out. A Wednesday morning session slot has been made available. If the past few years is any indicator, this 2nd session will also sell out. So I suggest if you are interested in the topic, sign up fast.
This presentation is the sequel to a top 10 presentation Virtualizing Databases: Doing IT Right given at VMworld last year in Barcelona and the US. . In this presentation we will teach you how to properly virtualize any business critical application with specifics on databases and VMware newest release vSphere 6.0.
A database is a very resource intensive by its very nature and one of the most resource intensive applications you will ever virtualize. If it is not done correctly you will not be successful. This presentation will teach you how to do it right. We will discuss why you virtualize a database, using the right hypervisor, installation, Architecting for performance, the storage layer, the processor, Memory considerations, the network layer. Topics include NUMA, Memory reservations, Network details to how to avoid common mistakes, changes made in vSphere 6.0.
